From Western Springs, Illinois in the near west suburbs of Chicago where Chris swam and played water polo.  She became an avid student of both sports in 1998 when she started coaching swimming and water polo.  Chris has run swim lesson programs, stroke clinics, assisted various age group swim teams, and been a head coach/administrator throughout the years for a variety of programs including private pools, park districts, YMCA, and several USA Swim Clubs.  Chris also started a club water polo program, coached at a national camp, as well as coached at the high school level. 
 
"As an athlete my passion was water polo, but as a coach my passion is swimming".  When not at the pool you will most likely run into her at the Whitewater Rafting Center, jogging, hiking or out on a paddleboard.  She enjoys traveling and is also a huge hockey fan.
